. >> four years, candidate obama promised to do so very much, but he has fallen so very short. i mean, he -- he promised he'd be a post partisan president, but he's been most partisan, dividing, attacking, blaming, he was going to focus on creating jobs, and instead he focused on creating obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, but then he doubled it, how is it he's fallen so short of what he's promised, i think in part because he's never led, never worked across the aisle and how the jobs are created in the economy and today he's making new promises, promises he will not be able to keep because he admits he is planning on staying on the same path, the same course that will not lead to a better destination. the same path we're on means 20 trillion dollars in debt the end of a second term that he won't have. it means tripling unemployment. it means stagnant take home pay, depressed home values, a devastated military and by the way unless we change course we may be looking at another recession. so the question of this election comes down to this,
years, it's a big decision. president obama making an emotional, final pitch last night in the state that launched him on the road to the white house in 2008. which way will iowa go this time around? what does that mean for the race overall? we are going to talk about that. plus can't forget this one, the big battleground state of ohio, which could decide this presidential election. governor romney making his final appeal to ohio voters in just about 40 minutes, it's all happening now. speaking of what's happening now. democracy is happening now, right? jon: it sure is all across the country. jenna: did you vote yet. jon: i did not. i'm going to do it after the show today. jenna: just making sure. you get a pass for that. we are glad you're with us, everybody, on this very important election day, 2012. we've heard just about everything, right, up until this point. today we are going to hear more from governor romney. the president potentially, although he's going to keep things kind of quiet in chicago where he's waiting and watching for the poll results as really we all are, and the
exciting. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney closing out a hard fought and expensive battle for the white house. voters facing a choice between two different visions . number one concern is the economy and which of those two guys will fix it in the next four years. >> gretchen: as we speak the polls are opening. connecticut, vermont and virginia and new york . very first votes cast in new hampshire . polls open there in midnight. and dicksville notch voters splitting it down the middle. five for president obama and five for mitt romney and 50 time ever there. and in another new hampshire village. obama won with 23 votes and mitt romney received nine and libitarian gary jaunce one vote. >> and that is the way it will be all day long as the race is really close. >> steve: both candidates in a virtual tie according to the polls. look at these guys. live in chicago where the president just arrive will watch the ballots come in. and phil keating in the swinger state of voting where early voting is controversial. john, mitt romney will be the first to vote this morning. >>

that the fbi was investigating the director of the cia but apparently as close a friend as he is of obama, he never told obama until two days after the election. do you buy that? some say it's a double standard. >> the fbi director, when i was the attorney general, had come to me and had advised me that the cia director of a suspected of having an affair, i would have notified the president of the united states. i would are done so because an affair by the cia director reflects extremely poor judgment. and i believe that the president would have wanted to know, was entitled to know that kind of information. and in my judgment this at that time would have been viewed as a possible national security threat. >> of course. so you have to wonder, is it us because we haven't been president or -- it's not protocol for the attorney general, happens to be one of the president's best friends personally, to not tell the president? and you have to suspend disbelief to think robert mouller in his many briefs never brought up the cia director is being investigated by his bureau, the fbi. it makes no sense.
